Holly Siegrist, Ph.D., Psy.D.


14 years of experience

Hi, I'm Dr. Holly Siegrist, and I am a psychologist licensed in California with 15 years of experience. I take a strength-based approach, and I work with clients on spirituality and meaning making, creativity, dream analysis, relationship issues, trauma, anxiety, depression, stress related to disability and other discrimination, grief, chronic illness, losses, and life change. My interests are in social justice, coping with discrimination, health and wellness, and resilience. My therapy style is warm and welcoming. I believe in treating everyone with respect and compassion, and providing a safe space to listen to clients. I have a Ph.D. in Psychology with Specialization in Existential, Humanistic, and Transpersonal Psychology from Saybrook University. I also hold a doctorate degree in Clinical Psychology from the California School of Professional Psychology at Alliant International University, an M.S. in Rehabilitation Psychology from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, an M.A. in Disability, Health and Illness from the University of Leeds, and bachelor's degrees in Psychology and Comparative History of Ideas from the University of Washington, Seattle. I specialize in dream analysis and lucid dreaming therapy. What drew me to therapy was my interest in social justice work while I was attending the University of Washington for my undergraduate education, and did peer counseling with students. I have always been interested in helping people, I enjoy hearing people’s stories, and I also find that in the therapeutic process I learn more about myself. Through my therapy journey I have gained much experience in working with diverse people. In addition, during my time at Saybrook University, I received training in spiritual approaches in therapy, and dream analysis and lucid dreaming therapy. I'm glad you are moving towards living a more fulfilling and happier life, and I am here to support you so you can empower yourself on your journey of transformation.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

The first session will involve us getting to know each other. I will ask you questions about your history and what brings you to therapy and your goals, and you can also ask me questions.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

My clients are motivated and strive for personal growth. I work with clients to get in touch with their inner strengths and wisdom when facing challenges. I facilitate their thoughts and ideas emerging, and help them manifest goals. My goal is to assist you to reflect on what you truly want out of life and follow your dreams.
